Hello,
I have found this Framework extension to be very valuable. One of the best so far...

Couple things that could improve it though:

1) relative css - figure a way to hook the original css linked in the parent template. It gets old linking and delinking a css file so you know what available classes are present at run time.

2) <title> fields. Do these work for everyone else? They seem broke in my case though hand coding the values is not a problem, it's a shame to lose functionality of the Title field in DW.

I expect others have suggestions to make this even a better extension?

Design Time CSS is your friend, you can find it under Format -> CSS Styles -> Design Time

This facility gives you the chance to link style sheets to the page that will only be shown within the Dreamweaver Environment

I have had no issues with title fields, what issues have you seen ?

I'll do a test when I have some free time and post the details on how to recreate.

Design Time CSS?? Perfect. Thanks for that.

No worries, there are lots of little features like that in DW that don't get much exposure for some reason.

Step by step - Title problem/Bug

I've created a new template this morning and charted the title bug....

Image 1 - Simple test page created with new template theme. Dreamweaver Title field ready to accept a value plus default editable regions in place to accept the entered title.

Image 2 - Test render of new page created showing it using the default title from the template.

Image 3 - Entering any value in the Title dialog text field in DW throws the shown error.

Image 4 - Forced title value placed in the editable region shown in source code. Also shown the resulting browser rendered view. Note NO title value passed or rendered and the value shows as value in the page body.

Conclusion : While it's not a problem to hand code this solution to work, it does show that there is a bug that does not allow the simple means of setting a title on a page that was created based on a Theme. This is a very simple test and default editable fields from DW should propagate to the Framework theme pages.

The content of the theme template even has the title region but something is prohibiting it all to come together.

Theme code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
</head>
<body>
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="MainContent" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
</body>
</html>
